Changing from Singular to Plural in English

By October 30, 2012

In most cases it's easy to change from the singular to the plural form of a noun - just add 's' to the end of the word. However, there are exceptions to this rule depending on whether the word ends in 's', 'ch', 'sh', etc., in which case we add 'es' to the word. Learn all about the rules for changing from singular to plural, as well as the exceptions. Next, test your knowledge of plural forms.

Not all nouns can be changed into the plural form, however. Some nouns are uncountable - for instance liquids. Other nouns represent concepts are also uncountable. Learn the rules for countable and uncountable nouns and then test your knowledge with this countable and uncountable noun quiz. Understanding both plural formation and the difference between countable and uncountable nouns will help you use nouns correctly.
